IIan Shamir is an inspiration. He is an artist, philanthropist, a writer, and a shining light. He is determined to plant trees. When he was eleven he planted a Magnolia tree and that one act created a path.
My sister and her husband traveled all over the country on the motorbike. They wanted to bring back family members gifts from the trips. That is no easy on a motorbike. As it turns out bookmarks made out of recycled paper were small gifts and worked well. They purchased the bookmarks at National Parks.
I believe IIlan would approve of his words being shared in this digital manner. The words will be his. The pictures will be credited. The thoughts and gratitude will be mine.
